A warm welcome.

This advert may be of interest as it represents perhaps the ultimate development of this type.  Someone may well have a fuller story but although Craig refers to the type as Aquafibre, the story is a bit more complicated.  As I understand it the hull was originally for a high speed sports boat for the Arab Emirates and the mould passed through a number of hands.

Hi Bill
I think you are right.
I seem to recall in the dim and distant past the origional boats being built by Tremlett on the south coast then turning up in Oulton Broad in Lake Loathing sometime in the late seventies early eighties. Am I right or even more confused than normal?

Hi There

I was advised that the Ideal 40 was originally designed as an extension derived from the Lancer power boat.  Hopefully I have remembered the name correctly.

I was advised it was designed by Ivan Wooltorton (again, hopefully name spelt correctly) and the moulds bought  by Aquafibre when they closed.

Blue Line, later Crown Blue Line used to run a number named "Conqueror" in their French hirefleet, so its likely more than four are still in France.

They were built for hirefleets in a 4-6 berth layout which normally had dark tinted windows and a 6-8 berth (with a set of bunks in the forward section as well as the two singles) and this layout nearly always had standard, clear glass.

Cheesman Rollo & Co of Staines fitted many of these out for the EuroCruisers group of companies, which included French bases, before they went bump, which possibly lead or would certainly have contributed to Cheesman's demise too.

Hope that helps a little, I'd be interested in any more you discover as they are the first type of cruiser we hired, so  have great affection for their stylish lines,

Dan

Your right dan, it was the Lancer Corniche offshore powerboat - I always had a bit soft spot for them - there is one for sale at the mo!

Cheers
